“A perfect 4 days at the Granary”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

My wife and I with 14 friends spent a wonderful 4 days at the Granary, we our own catering . We would recommend doing this as the owners have thought of everything which allowed us to serve four course dinners each night.
As some reviewers mentioned the approach to the farm was remote with very narrow roads and we recommend that a Sat/Nav using the farm postcode is a must as it took us to the farm without any problems.
If you are looking for a venue to celebrate with family or friends check out the Granary at Wood Advent Farm.
Would we stay there again? YES

Room Tip: The master bedroom is great but anyone with walking difficulties would find the stairs a problem. T...

Wood Advent Farm is a gem. Diana and John give you a brilliant welcome, always with a smile, slice of cake and tea. The rooms are very comfortable, and immaculately clean. Plenty of hot water for a very welcome bath after walking all day. Plenty of good walks directly from the house. Lovely swimming pool too. There is also "The Granary" which sleeps parties of eighteen people. The only snag with this place? It is totally addictive and you have to keep on returning.

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious, with lovely garden views. All very quiet, as there is no through road for t...

We stayed for one night and had dinner. The farm is on a secluded lane in a beautiful wooded valley. We had a lovely friendly welcome with the on the terrace and home made chocolate cake. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean with an amazing bathroom. The fresh home cooked dinner was beautifully presented and plentiful, as well as being very tasty. A lovely stay, would definitely recommend.

Wood Advent Farm felt as if we were sharing a well loved home. Our hosts were truly friendly, helpful, and polite. Everything was so comfortable, from the beds to the sofas. We were welcomed with tea and home made cake. The room was huge with a private bathroom next door, with tons of hot water. The bed was so comfy and we had a wonderful sleep. The situation is great, up a tiny lane out of Roadwater and the stars at night were amazing.
We had dinner which was superb - all home made and so tasty.
The house is full of what look like antiques and some of the sofas etc are a bit shabby, but it didn't matter, it all belonged and felt so very homely.
I thought this place was magic!

As a previous reviewer said "A gem in the N Somerset countryside". Half the fun is getting there but you can always get directions from the pub in the village. The rooms are seriiously comfortable and the sitting/ dining area lends itself to long chats around the fire putting the world to rights. If further discussion needed, then the hot tub is the place for serious debates!!

The whole atmosphere at the Farm is very welcoming and the setting is sublime

we have just returned after a weekend at wood advent farm our hosts and their staff were very pleasant but we felt the property was a little tired and needed a bit of TLC . How often do you pay £40 + a night and eat and drink from chipped crockery each day , some rooms are very much better than others so be sure to book a superior , also sadly there were several piles of fresh doggie pooh as we left the house ! not a nice farewell .

Room Tip: pay extra for a superior

We stayed at Wood Advent Farm as part of a walking tour on the Coleridge Way (very good 36-mile footpath) and did not know what to expect as accommodation was chosen for us. In the event we could not possibly have chosen better anyway. The house is fairly remote (perhaps a mile from the small village of Roadwater) and the view from the road did nothing to prepare us for the magical nature of the place. We were welcomed with much-needed drinks, and then with tea and exceptionally good home made cake, by our charming hostess and then shown round the house which seemed to have rooms everywhere, all of them very large and beautifully furnished, with terrific beds. The setting of the house is equally magical - in truly beautiful seclusion in a sort of hidden valley and we had a superb night's stay. I would recommend this spot to everyone (and probably will).

Room Tip: Due to the distance from any village the lovely lady at Wood Advent is also prepared to cook evening...
